Following the success of his Dance Photography Workshop in Leeds, in August 2020. Dancer, photographer and film maker Jack Thomson is bringing this dance photography workshop to the city of London.

This photography workshop is aimed at photographers who want to develop their relationship with dance and movement, and how it translates onto camera. It is also for dancers who have a vested interest in photography and wish to harness their dance knowledge to deepen their photographic practice.

Within the workshops participants will be exploring the intersection between dance and photography, focusing on form, composition and creativity. We will also be covering…

>>>Perspectives and approaches on capturing movement in a still form.

>>>Tools to keep your dancers/subjects constantly inspired by offering stimulus to provoke their physicality.

>>>Tapping into your own physicality in order to achieve your desired image.

>>>Dance photography as a collaborative act.

>>>The body and space/architecture.

Participants will be working with two world class professional dancers throughout the day, in the morning a classical ballet dancer and in afternoon a contemporary dancer.

Following the workshop days, all 16 participants will be invited to join a 2 hour zoom session which they will have the opportunity to share images from the shoot followed by an hour seminar about dance photography and its history.
